Another Carousel: this one turns, is a box and is FREE.

Another thought for party decorations or as a favour box.

This is the most fun I have had for  a long time. Finding items to make for the baby shower gets me excited! In “Googling” for stuff, I can across this free Carousel box and had to make it.

My sample is in pink and my box is 8 inches high as I made it to see how easy it would be to use for favours but needed it for a gift for my friend who just had a baby girl….so twice the use out of this project. This box I made held a pants, onesie, sock and bib for a 3 month old. I rate this as 45 out o 48 (see below)

So, this project is totally free except for your paper glue etc.

Here is the link to  the page with Studio file and PDF.

I did not use the very thin strips of paper for decoration. This is a project needs some crafting knowledge and fine motor skills, children will need help.

Here is my finished version, it does not look the same only because of the changes I made, and yes, it does turn!
